More than anything, Ida Bidson wants to become a teacher. To do that, she must finish eighth grade, then go on to high school. But her dream falters when the one-room school in her remote Colorado town shuts down. Her only hope is to keep the school open without anyone finding out. Yet even a secret school needs a teacher. Ida is only fourteen, so she can't do the job.... Or can she?

In the spirit of The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Newberry medalist Avi creates a splendid story of a headstrong girl determined to control her own destiny.
